Sammanfattning

Who are the knowledge workers perceiving high versus low location autonomy? Do these workers consistently select work environments to enhance their well-being or to enhance their productivity? This study frames the causal conditions for answering these research questions in response to calls (Misangyi et al., 2017; Woodside, 2014) to embrace complexity theory in management research by constructing and testing asymmetric case-based models of decisions and outcomes. The present study examines propositions relating to knowledge worker's choices of work environments, including: P1: Knowledge workers high in intrinsic work motivation consistently select work environment choices to enhance productivity. P2: Knowledge workers with high scores in perceived location autonomy (PLA) consistently select work environments to enhance well-being and/or work productivity. The study includes examining these two and six additional propositions empirically using a sample of full-time professional knowledge workers. The findings deepen and expand on prior symmetric-based theory and analysis.
